Combo gives same value everytime.

5 posts in this topic

Hello Everybody, I'm new and not to advanced in AutoIt but I'm trying to create a Sync Tool for a game I'm playing.

I'm using a combo box to select the save game, unfortunately it always returns value "4", what am i doing wrong?..

Do i need to unset the value or what is it that i'm missing.

I'd also like some advice, cause for this savegame i will need to read a xml file, is there anything XML like for AutoIt,

or do i need to read it as a string and then explode the values or what would be a good way to read an XML file.

#include "MySQL.au3"
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ListboxConstants.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Dim $NameList
Dim $UserName=          "user"
Dim $Password=          "pass"
Dim $Database=          "db"
Dim $MySQLServerName=   "host"
Dim $TableName=         "table"

$SQLInstance=           _MySQLConnect($UserName, $Password, $Database, $MySQLServerName)

$GUI = GUICreate("Sync Tool", 298, 108, 700, 202)

$tekstLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Synchroniseer je savegame met het systeem!", 8, 8, 283, 17)

$savegameCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Selecteer je savegame...", 8, 48, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Savegame 1|Savegame 2|Savegame 3|Savegame 4|Savegame 5|Savegame 6|Savegame 7|Savegame 8|Savegame 9|Savegame 10")

$SynchroniseerButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Synchroniseer", 8, 72, 75, 25)


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

; Events for Objects.
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $savegameCombo
            
        Case $SynchroniseerButton
            MsgBox("", "Box", "savegame" & $savegameCombo)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

; Functions
Func DisplayTable()
    $NameList=          ""
    $SQLCode=           "SELECT * FROM " & $TableName
    $TableContents=     _Query($SQLInstance, $SQLCode)
    With $TableContents
        While Not .EOF
            $NameList &= .Fields ("naam").value & " " & .Fields ("ingame").value & @CRLF
            .MoveNext
        WEnd
    EndWith
    MsgBox(0, "Gebruikers", $NameList)
EndFunc

_MySQLEnd($SQLInstance)

The value in the variable $savegameCombo is the control id of the combo box, not its contents. Try this instead:

MsgBox("", "Box", "savegame :" & GUICtrlRead($savegameCombo))

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

You could try and see if that UDF might be of use to you in reading the XML files.

I'm experimenting with it at this moment, though I'm used to programming in PHP and reading XML there is quite a bit easier it seems, hehe.

I'm not quite getting trough it yet.

Currently have this, but how do i generated an array or get the values that i would need.

$savegameValue = StringLower(StringReplace(GUICtrlRead($savegameCombo), " ", ""))
$savegamePath = @MyDocumentsDir & "\My Games\FarmingSimulator2011\" & $savegameValue & "\careerSavegame.xml"
$gameinfoPath = @MyDocumentsDir & "\My Games\FarmingSimulator2011\savegames.xml"

$savegameXML = _XMLFileOpen($savegamePath)
$mapId = _XMLGetAttrib('./careerSavegame', 'mapId')
MsgBox("", "Map", $mapId)

This is an savegame xml file, the only things i would need are the value's of money, mapId.

There's another xml file that i would need to parse, but i'll probably get that sorted if i get a little help parsing this one :x

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no" ?>
<careerSavegame revision="1" valid="true" money="99999994144150" dayTime="777.703796" playTime="601.955261" densityMapRevision="1" resetVehicles="false" mapId="FriskysFarmV3.SampleModMap" difficulty="1" autoBackupIndex="6" fuelUsage="1045.632935" seedUsage="0.000000" traveledDistance="233.656342" hectaresSeeded="0.000000" seedingDuration="0.000000" hectaresThreshed="12.341396" threshingDuration="76.467377" revenue="0.000000" expenses="2470.693604" numCows="20" milkProductionScale="1.000000" milkPriceScale="1.000000" manureProductionScale="1.000000" timeUntilNextRain="1146.296143" timeUntilRainAfterNext="6973.000000" rainTime="0.000000" nextRainDuration="266.000000" nextRainType="1" rainTypeAfterNext="0" nextRainValid="true" currentDay="16" saveDate="12.29.2010" foundBottleCount="0" deliveredBottles="0" foundBottles="0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000" reputation="0" foundInfoTriggers="00000000000000000000">
